a quick ‘n dirty HTTP proxy with node.js

** work-in-progress **

Get ‘http-proxy’ module

npm install http-proxy

Code example to proxy request from localhost to another target host


Run and test

“node .”

Test with URL pointing to current host on port 5050. The request should be relayed to the target URL.


– not using Eclipse with SAPUI5 plugin so there is no out-of-the-box Proxy servlet for local testing (Cross-Origins-Access issue)

– more options for “configuration” and great for some Javascript practice
